Reviewer: Eric "Jerry's Kid" Andreasen - - September 2, 2009
Subject: Highly impressed (esp. for an AUD)
It wasn't until I head this source (thank you JERRY MOORE, and Rob Berger) that I really got into this show. The playing is crisp, and the recording is also surprisingly crisp, considering the ravages of time and the quality of mics and recorders back in the day that would have been available to a "non-pro" live music fan/recordist. The low and mids are slightly underrepresented, but the top end is nice.
Bottom line: Even if you have this show, or parts of it, in different format (SBD, etc.), THIS VERSION is VERY NICE sounding! Not only do you get the music, but the crowd and the "ambience" of the entire scene comes through loud and clear on this recording. BTW: I believe there is also a recording of "The Band" from this date and taper (?) that I would echo that sentiment regarding the quality and ambience.
This recording might be the very best way to enjoy this show! (At least until time travel becomes possible... We're still working on that one...).
Look, I AM a picky listener, but I'm going to give this Four Stars because I currently consider it the best representation of the show currently available (and thanks, "laptaper"!). No, I can't give it Five Stars, but consider my Four Stars to be "4-1/2" stars (think: "8-1/2", as in the classic foreign film of the same title: Great, but not perfect, yet definitely worth experiencing over and over again!).
A fine listen of a great, and historic, rock and roll concert. A perfect example of mid-'73 live Grateful Dead. Who could ask for more? (you Phil Lesh & Ned Lagin fans, got it, YOU could ask for more, but as far as I know, "Seastones" or as it's sometimes called "Phil & Ned", was not played at this show, which, for perhaps the majority of GD fans, might even make it a smoother, more enjoyable listen...
Accounting for sound quality (compared to officially released recordings), and the fact that it was recorded from the AUDience, I'd still give it a Four Star rating, which from me is indeed "high praise"... Nice, mellow, better than a face full of jello, listen to Garcia, that lucky fellow... and his Dead compatriots, say hello!
